When Death Is Imminent
When a Muslim is approaching death, family members and very close friends should be present. They should offer the dying person hope and kindness, and encourage the dying person to say the “shahada,” confirming that there is no God but Allah. As soon as death has occurred, those present should say, “Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un” (“Verily we belong to Allah, and truly to Him shall we return”). Those present should close the deceased’s eyes and lower jaw, and cover the body with a clean sheet. They should also make “dua’” (supplication) to Allah to forgive the sins of the deceased.
When To Hold A Funeral?
According to Islamic law (“shariah”), the body should be buried as soon as possible from the time of death, which means that funeral planning and preparations begin immediately. We will work with local Islamic community organization of your choice to help make arrangements for the funeral service and burial, assist the family in identifying an appropriate funeral place, and coordinate with the burial place.

No, it’s a very quick and simple application process. You can purchase it over the phone, online or by post. You will receive your membership pack in the post within 14 days.
